“VirtueDesktops” is a virtual desktop manager for Apple’s Mac OS. It offers features, eye candy and configurable options that no other desktop manager on the mac has added yet, and is under active development. It is based upon the work done by Rich Wareham on DesktopManager, which is a lighter, less feature-packed virtual desktop application.
Below are some of the key features of VirtueDesktops.
Virtual screens: an unlimited number of virtual screens at your disposal
Eye candy: exciting transitions and window fading
Universal binary: runs at full speed on your shiny new intel-based mac
AppleScript-able: script your desktop experience
Unobtrusive: VirtueDesktops does not clutter your desktop - it gets in, switches your virtual screen and then quietly hides itself, waiting for your next request
Extensible: install plugins to add additional features
Exposé: works well with Apple’s Exposé
Keeps you informed: notifications and current desktop display orient you as you work across multiple virtual screens
“Stick-ify” your windows or applications: Make your windows and applications visible across all of your virtual screens
